How to Qualify

To qualify for the Presidential Citation, clubs must complete two mandatory activities and additional activities in several categories. Most activities will be verified automatically through RI’s data. But some will be verified only by the information you enter in Rotary Club Central.

To more accurately capture your club’s achievements, for the first time ever, clubs will have the entire Rotary year — from 1 July 2016 to 30 June 2017 — to achieve the Presidential Citation goals.

District governors will be able to track the progress of all of their clubs online, and I’m asking them to follow up with you regularly and support you in achieving these goals.

District Citation

I will also offer a special citation to districts that:

  • Have at least 51 percent of clubs earn the Presidential Citation
  • Contribute at least 20 percent of their District Designated Fund to PolioPlus
  • Increase Annual Fund giving by 5 percent over last year’s total
  • Achieve a 3 percent increase in membership

Thank you in advance for your efforts this year to show Rotary Serving Humanity.
